"The meeting space at BlackRock was ideal for a day-long board retreat. our team was comfortable in the space, appreciative of the easy location and complimentary parking, and inspired by the private outdoor space accessible from the meeting room. easy access to the i-270 corridor made it convenient for participants traveling from all regions of the county as well as DC. daytime use made our retreat effective and the affordability allows us to consider an evening program as well." - Kim Jones, Executive Director, Nonprofit Village

"We’ve used BlackRock’s lobby & main stage theater for Rodgers Consulting’s Annual meeting & holiday receptions for more than 10 years. the theater provides a private setting for our annual corporate meeting presentation, and we’ve arranged the lobby in a variety of celebration settings – from cocktails and hors- d’oeuvres at cafe tables to full service seated dinners. BlackRock’s holiday decor with lights, garlands and live poinsettias provides a beautiful space and the bar and kitchen amenities make it easy for caterers to work their magic. We’ve been extremely impressed with the musicians BlackRock has been able to recommend from their teaching and performance contacts. no reason to consider any other venue for our holiday and corporate meeting needs." - Erin Burrows, Rodgers Consulting, Inc.
